Thailand and Burma are neighbouring countries that are approximately the same size in area and population and have many cultural features in common. Yet they have traditionally been adversaries. This book explores, through their art, some of the elements that have both drawn the countries together and driven them apart. While representing the latest art historical scholarship, "Emerald Cities" is also an accessible entry into the world of Thailand and Burma, and highlights such luxuriant and spectacular artworks as gilded and mirrored ritual vessels, black lacquer and mother-of-pearl inlaid furniture, and vibrant, colourful paintings. These objects convey an exotic and exuberant ambiance which transports the reader to a lost time and place, one unlike any other.
